Indiana paces meet;
Adams wins discus

By MARC FELDMAN
Indiana University, paced
by a record-shattering per-
formance by Pat Mandera
in the six-mile run, forged
to an early lead in the Big
Ten Track and Field Cham-
pionships at F e r r y Field
yesterday afternoon.
The Hoosiers, winners of the
Meet in three of the past four
years and overwhelming favo-
rites to cop still another rowen
today, had 32 points after yes-
terday's three events.
TRAILING the Hoosiers in
the etam standings were Itlinsis
with 16 points, Purdue with 13,
and Michigan with 11.

the meet at the site where he
first made sports history same
39 years ago by breaking three
and tying one world's record in
an hour, at the Big Ten meet
of 1935.
Owens, one of those rare
sports figures like Babe Ruth
whose fame has endured for
years after the record books
were rewritten and whose leg-
ions of admirers transcend both
age and color barriers, clearly
enjoyed his return to a site of
his "former athletic glory just
as many of us saw he did dur-
ing his televised revisit to Olym-
pic Stadium in Berlin during
the Munich Olympics of 1972.
T h e bespectacled Mandera
was the star of yesterday's
events with his 28:01.4 over the
six-mile run. Mandera left the
old Big Ten record of 28:54.1
set by Minnesota's Dennis Fee
last year far behind. Ironically,
Fee finished fifth yesterday and
saw all four finishers break his
former standard.
STEVE ADAMS of Michigan
g a v e Wolverines supporters
something to cheer about with
a victory in the discus. The 6-7,
285 pound Adams heaved the

points in this event with second,
third ,andfifth place finishers
for 16 points.
Trials and semi-finai races
were conducted in the sprint
and intermediate d i s t a n c e
events with Michigan runners
advancing in three events.
In the 440-yard dash semi-
finals, Wolverines Kim Rowe
and Dave Williams advanced to
this afternoon's final. Rowe had
the fastest time yesterday (46.5)
and Williams the third best,
47.2. Jim Rowe will compete in
the 220 final for Michigan and
Andy Johnson qualified for the
880.
With their 32 points yester-
day and 14 qualifiers for today's
finals, the Hoosiers 'lave a lock
on the team title but it should
be an interesting battle between
Michigan S t a t e, Wisconsin,
Michigan and Illinois for the
runner-up spots.
AT CONCORDIA:
Local
By JOHN KAHLER
Quarterfinal action began last
night at the Ann Arbor Invi-
ttional, as local heroes Ann Ar-
bor Thompson's Pizza lost to the
Detroit Saints, a collection of
Shaw College alums, 103-89, in
a game that literally went down
to the last minute.
The Saints had built 'up a 15
point margin halfway through
the final stanza, but a frantic

JESSE OWENS holds a plaque awarded him yesterday at the
opening of the 1974 Big Ten outdoor track championships at
Ferry Field. At this same site on May 25, 1935, Owens set
four world records in an hour and went on to win four gold
medals in the 1936 Olympic Games.

with a leap of 25-6. However,
- - I.. - m: Indiana really racked up the

squad
Ann Arbor press caused that to
disappear in a hurry. With his
team ahead 97-93, Frank Molti-
more was injudicious enough to
be caught holding the rim on
the defensive boards, an act
that gave Ann Arbor's John
Lockard an easy two.
Only seconds ater, Detroit
lost the ball and, after a few
tries, Ernie Johnson tipped the
ball in to tie the score. But
Fred Williams canned a reverse
layup on Detroit's next posses-
sion, and a pair of Moltimore
free throws iced the game.
Play in the opening round
was wrapped up last night, as
Battle Creek started the action
by overcoming Benton Harbor,
85-80.
Neither team looked particu-
larly good in the opening stanza,
as Battle Creek could not buy a
bucket, and B e n t o n Harbor
seemed to care more about
fancy passes than effective
plays. Neither team led by more
than five, as the halftime score

was 36-36.
That was the last time the
score was close, as Battle Creek
blew the game open tn the sec-
ond half.
The, second game saw Kala-
mazoo downing Grand Rapids
in a hotly contested game by
the score of 85-81.
Ypsilanti, led by George Ger-
vin, opens today's action at 10
a.m. by battling the late South
Bend club. If rumors concern-
ing the presence of John Shu-
mate and Gary Brokaw on the
South Ben roster are correct,
this could be a very interesting
game.
At 11:30, Mt. Pleasant takes
on Battle Creek and Flint plays
Kalamazoo at one to finish off
the quarterfinals. The semifinal
games are scheduled for 2:30
and 4:30, respectively. The
Championship game and the
High School All-Star games will
be held on Sunday, all action be-
ing at Concordia Lutheran Col-
lege out on Geddes Road.

Tigers among the logjam at the top of the American League East Division, while the loss drop-
